The “shopping list” presentation

This presentation contains point, after point, after point. Often presented as bullet-point slide after bullet-point slide after bullet-point slide. It’s deadly dull. There’s no variety, no light and shade. It may be organized but it lacks any evidence: stories, case studies, endorsements, metaphors or analogies.

The antidote to the shopping list presentation is to include evidence to back up each of your points. Olivia has analyzed speeches from Al Gore, Seth Godin, and Malcolm Gladwell, and 60 to 70 percent of their speeches were composed of evidence.

Have you inflicted one of these presentations on your audience? According to presentation trainer Olivia Mitchell, these seven types are all a result of a lack of planning or the wrong sort of planning. Do you recognize yourself here? If you do, don’t beat yourself up over it, but resolve not to do it again! Visit Olivia's website for more presentation tips.
